“The striking thing about Lit Crawl, actually, was not the variegated writerly menu; nor was it the variety of venues—54 of them, including bookstores, bars, coffee shops, galleries and a bee-keeping supply store. Rather it was the specter of writing and literature—literature!—transforming an ordinary Saturday night in the neighborhood into a carnival of sorts. Up and down Valencia Street, crowds overflowed out of open doorways, and between readings, people hustled from one event to another or gathered on street corners clutching red Lit Crawl maps like participants in a mammoth scavenger hunt.”
—New York Times

There’s no adjective big enough to describe it, no euphemism discreet enough to hide it. Celebrating Litquake’s closing night, Lit Crawl is the world’s largest free literary crawl — and the wildest, most wanton literary night of the year. The Lit Crawl is the finale of the 9-day Litquake Literary Festival.
